DEARBORN — Edsel Ford High School, Dearborn High School and Fordson High School are planning different events to welcome incoming freshmen students.
Eighth graders and their parents are welcome to attend the events scheduled at their designated high school, even if they are not currently enrolled in Dearborn Public Schools.
Students who plan to join the district in the 2022-23 school year can enroll in the spring and can start working with the counseling office on their class schedules for the fall.
Dearborn Public Schools are not a schools of choice and only accept students who live in the district’s boundaries.
Parents can learn more about enrolling on the district’s enrollment page at www.dearbornschools.org/enroll.
Each welcome event will include an introduction and important school information from administrators, followed by an opportunity for students to meet with sports coaches and school club representatives.
